Amoeba Presents First Fridays at the Natural History Museum of LA With Allah-Las!

Posted by Billy Gil, February 21, 2013 01:48pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba’s ongoing sponsorship of First Fridays at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles continues March 1 with Allah-Las and The Babies. We’ll be at a table near the entrance selling Amoeba swag, $20-for-$10 Amoeba gift certificates (limit two per person) and more. There's also a tour of the museum and discussion with Dr. Lucy Jones starting at 5 p.m., discussing the history of seismology in LA and what might be in its future — yikes! The band performances run from 8 to 10 p.m., with KCRW DJs Anthony Valadez and Travis Holcombe spinning from 5:30 to 10 p.m. in the DJ lounge, where you can buy drinks as well. For $18 you get a presale ticket and museum admission (with a guaranteed spot in the concert hall), or museum admission with access to the discussions and DJ lounge but not the concert hall for $12. The event starts at 5 p.m. Get tickets for the show here.

allah-lahsThis show is extra special because it features Allah-Las, who met while the members were working at Amoeba. Since forming, the band, which filters surf rock, ’60s garage rock nuggets and ’80s jangly paisley underground rock into a cool, collected whole, has become one of the biggest young bands in Los Angeles. Produced by another local favorite, ’50s-flavored songsmith Nick Waterhouse, their self-titled debut record, released in 2012 on Innovative Leisure, was one of the most buzzed-about L.A. records of the year and has helped launch the band globally. We’re proud of our boys and we hope you check them out March 1! Read my interview with the band here.
